Versailles Xpro- Summer of 2005

I’ve recently scanned around 60 old rolls of film, which I’ll gradu­ally post. These are some photos of the palace of Versailles taken on some extremely expired slide film. At the time I worked in a photo lab, and ended up with a huge bag of all the expired film from the shop for about £20, and also got free devel­op­ment as a perk. Half-melted and degraded Kodak slide film + Olym­pus XA2 camera, cross-processed as C41.

Versailles in the summer of 2005

I’ve been sort­ing through my things, and found some old negat­ives. I’ve already scanned the one from Italy in the late 90s, and here’s some more. (There’s a lot more to come). In 2005 I went camp­ing with my mum in Yvelines, just outside Paris. You can get into the city in about 15 mins on the RER, so it’s a good combin­a­tion of camp­ing and sight­see­ing. Versailles is just down the road too. I took a lot of photos there, but I can’t find the others right now. These are taken with an Olym­pus XA2 and some cheap expired Kodak slide film, cross-processed.

Someone Tell Me Why I Do the Things That I Don’t Want To Do

One of the many rolls of film I have sitting around wait­ing to be scanned. This is from the days when I used to live in Read­ing. I want it to be sunny now! I long for long walks and picnics and lying on the grass in the sunshine, I’m fed up of the scrag end of winter. Diana + camera & Kodak Ekta­chrome 100 cross-processed.
